Two discoveries about this week have provided further support for the Catastrophic Model of Martian Geology. This helps show just how well the theory describes Martian. The Catastrophic Model of Martian Geology speaks of a planet wide Martian geological Catastrophe a few thousand years ago from about the the the Global Flood described in the Bible as happening on Earth.
The Mars rover Curiosity discovered that the regolith soil in Gale Crater contains about 2% water which would be consistent with the flooding event described by Catastrophic Model of Martian Geology for the crater. It all so contains higher percentages of chemicals that are poisonous or even potentially explosive such that it would not be safe to drink without considerable refinements, but the presence of the the water is consistent with a flooding evening within the last few thousand years.
Now while supervolcanoes were not original part of the Catastrophic Model of Martian Geology, the possibility of them they on Mars is consistent with it. The possibility has been suggested by the similarity between some Martian, and features on Earth thought to be supervolcanoes . While Catastrophic Model of Martian Geology was based on known large Martian volcanoes, the addition of supervolcanoes only adds to and inproves the model by have more sources of volcanic activity.
